Green and Clean event scheduled for Lansdale

July 13, 2017 by  

Once again, the Lansdale Public Library is holding its ‘Clean and Green Extravaganza’ to give residents of the community a convenient way to recycle their electronics.

In order to handle the recycled materials, the library has teamed up with 611 Metals, which will receive and process electronics and metal on site during the event.

Residents can drop off computers, scrap metal, small household appliances, and similar items, for free. The library cannot accept old television sets at this time, and although used CRT computer monitors can be dropped off, there is a $20 fee to recycle them. However, residents who want to recycle television sets will be given a discount coupon to be used at 611 Metal’s facility.

The event was organized by Tom Meyer, who is the director of the Lansdale Public Library. He sees the day as an opportunity for community members to think about what recycling means to the local area, and to the world as a whole.

Clean and Green is also a fundraiser for the library, which will use the money raised to replace three of its older study stations, making them more comfortable for users of all ages.

The Clean and Green Extravaganza is slated for this Saturday, July 15, from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. Events like this can benefit if organizers distribute flyers to community members beforehand.
